    I have exactly the same problem on the Galaxy GT I5500 from 3UK. Also with Android v2.2 froyo as standard. Apart from Universal Android Rooter, I've also tried the z4root app but it just froze the phone and I had to remove the battery to recuperate it. I'm still searching the net for possible solutions.

    THIS WANT I DID AND IT WORKED AFTER TRYING EVEYTHING

    1st I reset my phone (u will lose all your data so back it up ie bookmark,contacts etc) as it will be as if you have just taken it out of the box for the ist time.
    REST IS--
    SETTINGS - PRIVACY - THE FACTORY DATA RESET
    When thats done you need to turn on USB DEBUGING.
    SETTINGS - APPLICATIONS - DEVELOPMENT the tick USB DEBUGGING after the click home
    2nd copy and paste this link
    How to root your Samsung Device | MadTeam
    3rd Go to ( FIRST OF ALL DOWNLOAD THE REGUIRED fILE ) (FILE IS IN BLUE)
    4th Make sure you have SAMSUNG KIES on you PC (USE THE BLUE LINK )
    5th You will need to unzip the 1st file you downloaded (put in in a new folder so u know whats what
    6th CONNECT YOUR PHONE TO UR PC
    7th in the 1st file u downloaded when unziped you will see ( root ) click the and wait
    leave for a while be dont mess with the phone you will see a black box with info on what going on somtime it say sleeping just leave it dont touch !! at the end it will turn you phone off
    8th Turn back on and you will see super user witch show nothing straight away
    I then install ROOT CHECKER BASIC to check root, then installTITANIUM BACKUP
    I and now looking into more info what to do next DO NOT JUST UNINSTALL SYSTEM SOFTWERE WITHOUT CHECKING IF IT OK TO REMOVE,
    HOPE THIS HELPS IF NOT READ THE IST LINK I GIVE YOU GOOD LUCK !!!

    Excellent! Thank you very much. It worked.

    I didn't bother doing the factory reset so I didn't lose my data or settings. And it still worked OK.

    Thanks again. :)

    the very least they could have done is given credit to the creators of zergrush instead of trying to pass it off as their own root tool

    Damn it!! I arrived late! I have been looking for how to root my device (the same, and also 3UK) for 3 weeks without success. And finally, I find this post and I was so excited... Even I reseted my phone!

    But the link in your tutorial is not working anymore. Could you or anybody provide the required files or the name of the method or something?

    Thank you very much. Cheers!
